Breaking: NASA scientist finds evidence of alien life

Aliens exist, and there is proof.

That astonishingly awesome claim comes from Dr. Richard B. Hoover, an astrobiologist at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, who says he has found conclusive evidence of alien life — fossils of bacteria found in an extremely rare class of meteorite called CI1 carbonaceous chondrites. (There are only nine such meteorites on planet Earth.) Hoover’s findings were published late Friday night in the Journal of Cosmology, a peer-reviewed scientific journal.


A photograph taken through a scanning electron microscope of a CI1 meteorite (right) is similar in size and overall structure to the giant bacterium Titanospirillum velox (left), an organism found here on planet Earth, a NASA scientist said.

According to Dr. Hoover, the possibility of contamination has been completely ruled out. "What is both exciting and extraordinary" Dr. Hoover said, "is although many of the bacteria resemble and can be associated with generic species on Earth, there are others which are completely alien. Neither I nor other experts who have seen the evidence have any idea what these creatures might be."

"I believe these findings indicate that life is not restricted to Earth, but is broadly distributed, even outside our solar system" said Dr. Hoover.

Dr. Carl Gibson of the Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences at Scripps Institute and the University of California at San Diego had this to say: "Dr. Hover has provided the world with extraordinary evidence to back up extraordinary claims. This discovery completely changes our perspective of the nature of life and our place in the Universe, The world will never be the same."

how can we spread the word on this to more main stream medias?
this is huge news that needs to be opened up.

This is a wonderful find for the community that already know there is alien life.

And how could there not be? I think it is silly to imagine we are the only sphere in the universe (or multiverse) with life! Hopefully this will open the door to easing the public into accepting that there are "others" out there. Nice to see it is coming from a reputable source with other journals and scientists backing up the claim. I know this isn't an AMAZING alien story, BUT isn't it great to see a photograph that almost can't be disputed?!
